Kingfisher Hap, At Last!

Kingfisher Hap, At Last!

Well, this post has been a long time in the making — my Kingfisher Hap is at last finished, blocked, dried, and photographed!

If you’ve been following along here for a bit, you might have spotted the Kingfisher Hap  when it made an appearance or two (or, er, three) in Yarnalong posts this fall.

If you’ve been around for longer still, you might remember when I started my hap this past summer.

Though sometimes I get frustrated with myself when I take ages to finish a project, the bright side, I suppose, of a long term knit is that when you do finally complete it, it’s wrapped up with all sorts of memories — and that’s definitely true of this hap.  It’ll always be a very special knit to me because of their circumstances surrounding the starting and making of it.

Yarnalong: Nut Hap and Extra Curricular

 

2016-07-06 09.59.49.jpg

It seems fitting that, for my first Yarnalong post, I’m sharing the start of a new project!

Knitting: Nut-Hap … getting set up for a 679 stitch tubular cast on took quite a bit of time!

Reading: Extra Curricular, a lovely New Zealand magazine about people making beautiful things. If you’re in the United States, the lovely shop Wool and Honey just started stocking this special little magazine!

See what others are knitting and reading at the original Yarnalong post!

What are you knitting and reading this week?
